The cohort is off to a great start, with two work sessions and two New Game Makers workshops under participants’ belts!
This week, we’re starting to work on modifying existing games in GameSalad and Stencyl, and next week’s assignment will have everyone starting work on their game. We are not certain what tools participants will choose to use, but there will likely be a mix of GameMaker, Stencyl, GameSalad, Unity, and Adventure Game Studio.
Call for Mentors
Starting with work session #4 (Wednesday, July 25), we need mentors to be available for the work sessions to assist our seven game-makers with their tool of choice; to provide game/level design guidance; advice on creating art, music, and content assets; or simply be on hand with encouraging words when they encounter bugs and other bumps on the road.
July 25, August 1, and August 8 (7 – 9 p.m.)
July 28, August 4, and August 11 (5 – 9 p.m.)
If you are available for any of these dates, please let us know!
Thanks to our volunteers so far!
